Citroen‘s Mehari was definitely one of their most iconic vehicles from the 60’s until the 80’s. Constructed originally for military use, the Mehari used a Dyane 6 chassis to create quite a fun beach buggy. Certainly, this was a great example of the French automaker’s innovative design.
So popular was the old school Mehari that a new electric version, the E-Mehari, has just been launched in some markets throughout Europe and is expected to begin in the UK in the near future.
As expected, prices for Meharis have sky-rocketed in recent years, with pristine examples fetching surprising amounts. So if you’re planning to purchase the original version, you will need to dig deep.
What if you’re after a Mehari which separates you from the crowd? Look no further! Behold the transparent Citroen!
Spotted at a show in France, this modified Dyane in Mehari clothing really brings a fresh and unique appeal to an already sub-zero cool Citroen.
